of attention paid to school lunches, especially with first lady michelle obama leading the push for healthier food. but there is something else going on that a growing number of our public schools across this country are seeing. an issue when the students are fed in the school day. our report tonight from nbc's kate tur. >> reporter: it's just after 6:00 in the morning, and this 17-year-old is rushing out the door for school. no time for breakfast, class starting at 8:15 his first meal today is pizza, only a couple of bites, though. >> it doesn't sit right with my stomach. >> reporter: that is because it is 9:55 in the morning, joe's regular fourth period lunch. >> i think it is too early. they should have lunch at lunchtime. >> reporter: early, but it is happening across the country. schools in at least six states start lunch before 10:00 in the morning. and in some places they eat as early as 8:30 in the morning. nobody thinks it is ideal, but for many schools like vernon high school here, they simply don't have another choice. >> reporter: a big reason, they say, overcrowded schools and ti
in case you only saw michele. number one -- >> that was president obama speaking to a riled up crowd in woodbridge, virginia. michael hastings has been on the campaign trail with the president. the president is up by at least five points according to some polls, higher margins and others in virginia, the confederacy he won in 2008. and early voting starts in the state today. >> right. >> we saw some -- i'm going to say swagger-ific behavior on display at the stump and mention of mr. romney and victims. of course alluding to romney's infamous 47% video. >> pretty explicit alution to that video. over the past three weeks the obama campaign has been feeling good post-convention, they survived this libya incident. yesterday was a stumble but i think they've been feeling quite confident and you see it in his demeanor, you see it in the crowds pretty excited out there. and i think that's how it's going to -- i mean i think you know what they don't want -- i saw bob woodward say -- talking about the october surprise and i think that libya moment, there was this sense of oh, my gosh, is this
and one can only imagine, i mean if michele obama did the same thing it would be -- i mean the human cry would be massive. >> i think it's just a very difficult thing to say essentially at this point in the race. you had mitt romney say a version of this in an interview with chuck todd, wouldn't it be nice if we could have an agreement where essentially we don't attack each other, just talk about ideas and things like taxes and my business experience and all this stuff is off the table, his business experience is what he has put out as his qualifications for running so that's going to get looked at and analyzed and be a part of the conversation. and so i think that we've just reached that point in the campaign where i think it's very intense, i think that both sides are feeling a lot of pressure but the side not doing as well is going to be more visible about it. >> the pressure is definitely on around the table. we will come back after the break and seems few people or events can bring washington together these days. that is an understatement indeed. this week burmese pro-democracy lead
to take north carolina off the table, but just this week paul ryan was campaigning there and michelle obama was campaigning there. that tells you that north carolina is still very much in play, as are many states. another pollster purple strategy is a combination. it's a bipartisan firm. they show that mitt romney's only up three percentage points in arizona. we see an expansion of the map potentially. >> it's a tight race. 243 electoral votes in obama's column and 191 in governor romney's with with 104 in the toss-up category. this is not a done deal for anyone that thinks it is. thank you for your time. these are new images over the anti-islam film that insulting the prophet mow haw mad. today more protests and people this time killed. plus -- >> you're going to see it swing back, and you watch. if mitt romney can take one punch after another from his own fist, because he keeps hurting himself, and this thing ties back up, you're going to have a lot of clenched people in the obama campaign. >> all right. you heard a little bit of what joe had to say. will that all come true? we'll g
, the congressional black caucus is having their caucus today. michelle obama it is going to be addressing the issue of voter suppression reid is anyone going to be talking about the death penalty? >> i do suspect it will come up in some of the justice hearings that are going on, the panel discussions. there will be a lot of talk about voter suppression this year because we're in a real title wave, as you know, across this country. the good news is we're turning the tide there, just as we are on the death penalty. sing a group of folks here today, we are a group of people that have abolished it for juvenile spread with abolish the death penalty for group, the retarded. we will use the same strategy there. we have a majority of states to outlaw the practice is and we went to the supreme court and said not only is the squirrel, but because now it is only practiced by a minority of states, it is also unusual, therefore, band and for the entire country. they did in both cases. we're hoping if we can get rid of it in california, ohio, if we can get rid of it in seven more states beyond that, we can go to
. >> bill: no! bill clinton. where's michelle? >> i was thinking michelle obama. >> bill: and michelle. >> i'm stunned by that. >> bill: biden is a warm-up to obama maybe i can understand but still, bill clinton i thought was -- >> bill -- joe biden caught the most eyes. lady gaga has gained some weight and her fans are taking notice so she took to a radio interview yesterday to clear the air. the pop star admitted to new york's whtv radio she has packed on 25 pounds because she loves eating italian food cooked by her dad who owns an italian restaurant. critics beg to differ. they think it is because of the amount of alcohol she drinks. she says it is the meatballs and she is working on a plan to drop the pounds. >> bill: i didn't know ga ga was an italian name. >> the prime time emmy awards are this weekend -- >> bill: wait a minute. you're wearing the nationals shirt. do the damn nationals story here.

, the first lady, michelle obama, perhaps the president's secret weapon, making, what, 11 visits to north carolina since 2009? talk about mrs. obama's appeal there. >> well, she has stressed military families and helping them and, of course, north carolina has a very strong military presence with fort bragg and camp lejeune, the marine base. so military issues are very important. it's a way -- she's much more popular than her husband is here, and it's a way to portray herself and to portray, sell the obama administration in a very nonpartisan way because it has broad support, it goes across party lines, of course. arthel: and then, rob, you mentioned that 2008 election. of course, the obama/biden ticket getting 49.70% of the votes there, the mccain/palin ticket, 9.48. so close -- 39.48. so close. so i ask you, what is it about the politics of north carolina that makes it such an enigma? >> well, there's a couple things going on here. first of all, it's a upper-tier southern state, it's much more like virginia than a deep south state, so it's always been much more moderate. we've had 20 ye
